attached. the implications down the road, we'll look at the midterm elections next year and, of course, 2016. >> yeah, there could be big ones. the 2014 midterm elections could be costly for the democrats here, especially in state legislative races where you may remember they'll try to hold on to the very precious 2/3 majority which is neutralized republicans. also, with less enthusiasm among key constituencies, there will be a few congressional seats in play in northern california as well, like jerry mcnerney and john garamendi come to mind. critical seats for those folks. then there's the 2016 presidential election. the big one. with these numbers, republicans may want to invest here which at minimum will force democrats to defend their turf and spend money that they might have spent elsewhere here instead. so, yeah, you say 2014, it's a year away, but you know what, with data like this, huh-uh, for republicans, it can't come fast enough. >> yeah, it sets table for a lot of things. thank you, larry. >>> still to come, finally a ray of light for obama care. the president said t

. wait for a signature until after the april elections as hamid karzai wants? >> basically because n.a.t.o. says it would be too late to do that. they need a degree of certainty. they are pressing on hamid karzai to sign the agreement because he has agreed to it in principal with talks with secretary of state john kerry. there are budgetary cycles, planning cycles. you can't switch on and off military trainers. they need a degree of certainty for this to happen. if we don't get the signature on that the zero option will have to be on the table and that is an option where the troops will have to be pulled out. it's an option at this point, nout one they are afraid of threatening, if hamid karzai does not sign the agreement. john kerry described it as needing the best transition possible. and in order to do that they need months of transitioning. it's not good enough to leave it until april. >> in ukraine, the government demonstrations in kiev have been addressed at the summit in brussels, how surprising was the level of condemnation by n.a.t.o., and the secretary of state john kerry

political elections, popular elections, and the people choose governments. they chose mahmoud ahmadinejad years ago and they chose a different path this time around. that provided an historic opportunity to us and the west to address this issue. we are not talking about sanctions. the effect on sanctions have been two fold. when sanctions started iran has less than 200 centrifuges, we have 1900. the met product the 18,800 centrifuges that has been added to the stock. centrifuges, so anxiouses have utterly failed in that regard. it seems the west is taking advantage of that opportunity. we have a new government in iran with a different approach to foreign policy. they have not changed. we will insist on our rights. we will not negotiate or compromise on the rights of our people. we believe this can be addressed through constructive engagement. the window of opportunity is limited. >> israel is not impressed from comments from the iranian foreign minister. there's no shortage of finger pointing between the two countries. reaction from jerusalem, from nick schifrin. >> here in je

after three disastrous elections where the democratic party was viewed as unelectable by a lot of the country, it was fueled by ideas, by platform, by a vision of where to lead to reinvent the party. and you see the great deficit in those remarks by the speaker that the congressional wing of the republican party has in the eyes of the american people, absolutely bereft of ideas. i'm not a fan of the affordable care act, but my party has no solutions to deal with what's a real issue. no working person in this country, for example, should lose their house, go bankrupt, because their kid breaks their leg or their spouse gets leukemia, so republicans, who were once the party of ideas, during the regan era, through the 1990s along with president clinton, we have collapsed as far as our ability to be policy entrepreneurs. that's the great challenge if we're to be successful in 2016, to have candidates to break away, put forward ideas about economic growth, health care, and ideas that americans are focused on. >> jonathan, you wrote a great piece today about the republican party basically be

health care when the president was running for election the first time, it was clearly defined for voters or especially swing voters as an economic issue. this is not separate from pocketbook issues, this is right on point. that's why given where we are at with a still struggling economy for many people, health care does fit into these pocketbook issues. when republicans talk about you've got your free choice of doctors, for most people there isn't an actual free choice, because the cost of going to any doctor, any hospital you want is prohibitive. those are those out of network costs that make it very, very difficult for anyone to support this free choice that supposedly is part of this system. so people understand that very well. what they don't understand is what the president is proposing and how these costs will come down if they take part in these exchanges or the coverage they get will be better through their employer. >> has the democratic side been outmaneuvered on this, outmarketed on this so far, rick? >> well, they labor under the disadvantage of having to actually get
